Clear Interiors Staff Interview – Val

Posted at April 15, 2013 | By : | Leave a Comment!

GetInlineAt last Spring has arrive in Norwich! It has been a long cold and hard winter, but that’s all behind us now and we can look forward to some long warm sunny days (hopefully).

This week we have another staff interview and once again I am very proud to introduce to Val.

Val is sister to Tracey and Sharon. Yes, we really are a family business! After Tracey, Val was the second sister to come on board, then lastly, Sharon. How fantastic to find three amazing women all in one go and all in one family and all expert in their work. I couldn’t believe my luck!

I was fortunate to work with Val for a couple of weeks when she first started, so got to know her well. Training her was a piece of cake and only had to explain things once. A lot of people think cleaning is easy and there is nothing to it. Wrong!  I have discovered over ten years of business there are very few people who can clean in an effective and intelligent manner. By this I mean:

a) Have and eye for detail and understanding of it
b) Consistent and methodical approach
c) Awareness of the responsibility of going in someone’s house to clean
d) Enjoy it!

Val, like her sisters, is easy to get on with, hard working, very responsible, and has a great sense of humour… Well, she laughs at most things I say anyway! Before working for Clear Interiors Val had worked in the caring profession for 15 years. This experience has been worth it’s weight in gold when working with some of our more vulnerable and elderly customers. She has gone over and above what I and her role expects, much to the gratitude of our customers and myself. Aside from working for Clear Interiors Val has a creative, artistic side and in her spare time she likes to make pieces of artwork either for herself, her family or friends. She even took time and went out of her way to make a lovely ‘new baby card’ for a customer who recently had a happy new addition to the family. Another surprising gift Val has is for some unusual top tips. I could guarantee any job we worked on together, if there was a specific problem, Val would have an unusual solution. We will be compiling a list of these, so watch this space. To say Val is a truly valued member of our team is an understatement. So without further ado her is her Q&A.

Q: How many years have you been working for Clear Interiors?

A: Two years eight months.

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A: I live in Norwich with my husband and two daughters. My son lives over the road with my daughter-in-law and my eight year old granddaughter. I love having the family close by.

Q: What is the best part of working for Clear Interiors?

A: Getting to work with my two sisters and the rest of the fantastic team, plus meeting all our wonderful customers.

Q: What is your top cleaning tip?

A: Mix 3 drips of clove oil to 1 litre of water and wipe areas susceptible to mold to kill mold spores.

Q: What do you like doing in your spare time?

A: Cooking and baking new recipes and spending quality time with my family and a glass of wine!

Q: What do you like about Norwich?

A: I love that all my family and friends are so close by.

Thank you Val for sharing that with us.
